Nasubukan ko kanina yung custom guitar ni marklakandula sa lazer, sa my sm carpark through a vantage amp, e2 yung mga masasabi ko:

Good:
- maganda yung finish
- Maayos yung tunog ng pickups (both clean and distorted)
- nandun yung feel ng strat na neck (which i really love!!!)
- maganda yung design ng fixed bridge

Bad:
- Nabigatan ako, hehehe


P.S.
 Thanks sir mark for letting me try your guitar, i'll try to post the pics within this week.  :-)



hay... gusto ko tuloy magpacustom ng 24 fret na tele with bindings, maple fretboard, number inlays, H-S-H or H-H or S-S-H pickup config, 5-way switching and fixed bridge, kulay light pink or ube!!!  :-D (magkano kaya yun?)

"Up for our local luthiers..."

-dude, i think u don't understand that message u posted, u wanna support local luthiers but you're saying this thread is a non-sense?
local luthier c mang max dude! he's not from another country!

i created this thread because i want MAX RUFO's works to be recognized here, & if possible, the world over!

if u really are intersted about his guitars, why not go to his place directly.

i wasn't able to post pics because i haven't been to max'a place sine my last visit.

pics doesn't proof a guitars quality, u will see its physical condition but u may hear its sound when u get to play it, that's what guitars are for right? to be played & heard!
 


Dude Baka ikaw ang d naka intindi ng sinabi ko...  :?

If you want to promote something, pictures will very much help...

How would you entice people to go to his shop if they do not have anything to stir up thier interest...

Kaya nga sinabi ko kung mag popromote kayo mag lagay ng pix para mas lalong makatulong k Mang Max...

Simpleng prinsipyo lang ng advertising yan men...

just went to sir max kanina hapon para ipaayos yung squire butterscotch tele ko. ok kausap si mang max. mura pa sumingil. ginawa nya on the spot yung mga gusto ko paayos dahil di nman sya gaano busy kanina. binutasan ng konti pa yung headstock para ikabit yung new tuning machines na dala ko (katulong pako mag butas), he installed my brand new fender tele nosieless pick ups (changed the stock wires to shielded wires) adjusted the guitar to low action. ayus, sarapa pa kakwentuhan, may natutunan pako he he. nakita ko rin yung mga ikino custom na guitars nya. tried his customized flying v and yung mint na tele, galing, ganda ng tunog. all in all saludo ako sa taong ito. mapa custom, minor or major repairs ng guitars and basses, ok sya. :mrgreen:









sorry for the blurry pics ng habang inaayos nya guitar ko, cam phone lang gamit ko  :mrgreen:

hmmmm....

pics will certainly help but then u should've not  posted this thread is a nonsense, that's the whole point dude!




hmmm... hi folks!

bluenote does have a point about the pics (i went through the whole thread and it wasn't "porno" enough, know what i mean  :wink:) a big part of the excitement in having a custom axe made is in the documentation, from wood to guitar. Heck, if i knew which tree the wood was taken from, i would have shot that too!

I would love to see more of Max Rufo's work. Just shrug off Bluenote's comment about your thread being nonsense to avoid a war, but to expound on his point in a more subtle manner....

... no one brags about a hot chick they met better than one who has the pictures to prove it  :wink: all talk/text is one dimensional, and i'm clueless about the facts if all that is presented are superlatives. Imagine an FHM issue without pics? or to our world, a Guitar Player issue like a novel... still interesting, but not spectacular.

Looking forward to lotsa pics! Yeah!

More power dude, I hope more local luthiers come to the fore with great instruments  :-) our music and our country needs it

hi, had my first and only electric modded by Mang Max. super bait, his prices will really tempt you into having a custom made. hope a lot here will give him a shot...my knowledge on guitar craftmanship is next to nil, so i really can't give a useful comment on his work. all i know is there's a lot of potential in his tiny shop...

here's what i had done:

from the original stock Genesis Series (dunno what model, the highschool version of me molested the model number and paint off of the headstock)



to this:




had him strip off the paint, fill the trem cavity, paint the stripes to hide the new wood, change the humbuckers (just cheap generic korean w/c he bought), install new bridge and ferulles, install push/pull pot to switch humbuckers to series/parallel, install a humbucker pickup cover  custom made by him (wala lang, thought it looked cool...i had him add this after we've locked down on the price, he put it in free), replace the rusted neck joint plate, and replace stock locking nut to bullalo nut.
